Some selections from a recent shoot with artist Malia Laura in my neighbourhood.
Some pages from my sketchbook, where I worked out many of the compositions that made their way into my paintings and drawings during the last year.

Manifestation contre la brutalité policière et le racisme
A selection of photos which I snapped at the Manifestation Contre la Brutalité policière et le Racisme, in Montreal on June 7th, 2020.
Present organizations: comité Québec con Ayotzinapa – Bat Bravo pou lajenes – Fondation Busta John – Hoodstock – Affirmation de la femme Afro du Québec – organisme Evolujeunes 1930 – Black Rose Alliance – OFC community Directory Bottin Communautaire.
Thank you to all the beautiful and generous individuals who accepted my request for a photo during the Manifestation, your welcoming smiles, kind words, speeches and beautiful handmade protest signs are teaching me so much. I am grateful to you for taking on the burden of educating and challenging me and countless other white people about racism and privilege and for reminding us of our duty to make things right. I recognize that it’s a privilege to learn about racism rather than experience it first hand. I will continue to listen, read, donate, educate, share and march by your side.

Montreal to Toronto – TRI-X 320
Armed with Roy’s Rolleiflex SL66 and several expired rolls of Kodak TRI-X 320 Film, I left for Toronto to surprise Hayden at his 40th birthday party.
Below are a selection of shots from the four rolls of film that I shot during my short trip. It took me a while to get a hang of the camera, so several shots didn’t turn out, but I’m very pleased with the ones that did. They are more eerie and evocative than I could have hoped for.
I’ll def be shooting with the Rolleiflex SL66 again.
